Suppose that you have a Java Amazon Kinesis application which handles messages from the Amazon message queue handler Kinesis. This means that you have a method that starts a Worker object in the com.amazonaws.services.kinesis.clientlibrary.lib.worker library.
If you are developing an application that is meant to process messages from Amazon Kinesis and you don’t know what I mean by a Kinesis app then check out the Amazon documentation on the Kinesis Client Library (KCL) here.
The starting point for this post is that you have a KCL application and want to host it somewhere. One possibility is to deploy it on Amazon Elastic Beanstalk. You cannot simply deploy a KCL application as it is. You’ll need to wrap it within a special Kinesis Beanstalk worker wrapper.
